"Cloud Horseman" began flying over Taiwan


Testing drone held in Taitung County. According to Taiwanese media reports, Teng Yun is being tested at Zhihang airbase, flying over sparsely populated areas.

The characteristics of the drone developers do not disclose, indicating only that it is in the same class with the American drone MQ-9 Reaper.

The device was developed for the Taiwanese Air Force, but its initial version did not suit the military - in particular, the Defense Ministry expressed dissatisfaction with the drone’s electronics. After completion, the drone may again interest the military, who intend to purchase from 12 to 20 similar devices.

        We always have as long as the roasted cock does not bite ... and then we begin to heroically catch up and build shock, like BAM.
